I’m like a kid on Christmas morning!
Is this really happening? Is the team that I’ve rooted for and cheered for all season really in the Stanley Cup Finals?
Hell ya, they are!
Bruins and Canucks will face off at 8pm EST in Game 1 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals. I’m supposed to have grad class until 8pm but I’m totally planning on having to “go to the bathroom” and racing home (as much as one can race on public transportation) to watch the game. I was invited to a meetup of Canadian ex-pats in Boston to watch the game, but they’ll all be cheering for the Canucks and I don’t know if I can handle that…
There has been a lot of media coverage of the SCF here in Boston (natch) and with that comes some awesome photos and screen caps of our most favorite Bruins players. I only felt is was far to share them with our loyal readers because regardless of your personal hockey affiliation, you understand the magnitude of the Stanley Cup Finals and what it means to the Canucks and Bruins hockey fans everywhere.
Plus their beards and faces are awesome. See evidence below.
